Her father says she's just a daddy's girl with some unladylike hobbies. The FBI and the ATF disagree.
Celia Alchemy Savage, 23, was arrested by federal and local officials after a Wednesday search of her Cornelia, Georgia home allegedly turned up two pipe bombs, a pistol, suspected marijuana and methamphetamine and alleged drug paraphernalia. She is being held on federal weapons, explosives and drug charges, and has been denied bond.
According to the criminal complaint, when an ATF agent asked Savage what there was to do in Cornelia, Georgia, she said, "Blow things up." The agent said that Savage also stated that she "likes to blow up toilets in the woods."
Savage allegedly told authorities that "manufacturing explosive devices and detonating them for recreation was her hobby," and that she had built five to seven pipe bombs for fun.
"Savage stated she was aware that it was wrong, or against the law, to manufacture the destructive devices," alleged the ATF agent in the criminal complaint, "but claimed she has a passion for it."
The complaint alleges that the drugs, drug paraphernalia, "numerous pills," pistol and bomb components were found in a bedroom of the residence that Savage described as her "lab." According to the ATF agent, Savage admitted that she had used marijuana "the previous day and methamphetamine two (2) months ago."
A video of Savage blowing up a toilet in the woods can still be seen on YouTube. Savage's father, Tommy Savage, confirmed to investigative reporter Mark Winne of ABC Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV that his daughter was the person seen in the video.
Savage's Facebook profile, which is also still on the web, lists "explosives" as an interest, her political orientation as "anarchist" and her status as "Push to test. Release to detonate."

I do not believe that it is illegal to blow things up on your own property. The atf would have to show that what was used was a "destructive device".
State law should be dominant for the use of explosives.
Whatever is posted on the net is likely to come to the attention of authorities.
The pictures of this young woman do not resemble someone who has used meth for any significant period.
Remember the early "news" releases on the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case.
The NSA computer must have lit up like a slot machine paying a jackpot!
During Bowman's subsequent actions, he made an effort to take out federal agents and plant child pornography on them.
Seriously now, why the heck do we still have the ATF.
Its a good thing my friends and I aren’t teenagers today, we’d all be in prison. Us rural kids loved anything that made lots of fire and went BOOM.
She’s in deep doo-doo.
Here’s some boys having fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdSdYhGdf6c
Just checked the link. Definitely not guilty.
If a device isn't destructive, how does it blow things up?
Knows explosives, has many rifles, and legs from here to eternity.
Yes, I would hit that.
In fact, I'd never stop.
blowing stuff up ping
I feel so much safer now
I was deathly afraid someone would come into my house and blow up my toilet, and now there is one less on the streets.
The girls life of villiany is over.
It is great that the government has rounded up all the important terrorists so that they have free time to go after toilet bombers.
In the past, the villiage idiots played an important role in society. You could send them on dangerous missions where they could serve as a lesson to others. It seems like the only person she could have blown up is herself, and she might have made an educational and instructive video for others to see...
Somebody trying to justifying their bureaucratic existence and budget somewhere....
So law abiding citizens can contemplate the knock on the door. Oh sorry they don’t knock, your first clue is when the door comes off the hinges.
purchase, store, possess, contemplate, anything larger than a lady finger, and you become the target. When I was a youngster, cherry bombs, M-80’s even firecrackers that were way better than today’s, were in common use. What changed? The long and intrusive nose of G O V E R N M E N T!
You might consider a pass on this one. She looks like a black widow.
They must have run out of Muslim terrorists to check up on. Alot easier to go after young girls. After all she posed with a gun AND a DEAD ANIMAL. She must be dangerous!
Those are the best of all.
Hey, with the middle name “Alchemy” I would be disappointed if she wasn’t learning how to make explosives and meth in her spare time.
She was targeted because she was blowing up those new fangled government approved low flow toilets.
What’s not to hit!?!
To much TV, and lawyers convinced all they have a right to a risk free life. I bet those cops were wishing she had a dog to shoot also.
Anyone thinks this is a lie, I've got first hand experience with this tactic.
First the ATF used a bird leg ATF agent to try and set me up for drug possession when that didn't work they planted dope in back of my truck.
I guess from looking at the back of my truck they never figured I would clean it out.
They figured wrong.
I found the bag of dope and chunked it into the dumpster.
When they sent their little agent to look for the dope in my truck the dope was gone.
So NOT GUILTY! Looks like it’s time for the DUKE Boys to come to the rescue........
Very interesting. Thanks for posting.
Based on what some are posting on her facebook wall, someone had a personal vendetta against her and called the police. I wouldn’t be surprised if they planted the drugs (if they exist at all).
She “hits” back, so you had better be careful.
****I was deathly afraid someone would come into my house and blow up my toilet,****
Doing a job of getting rid of high water flow toilets! The gov’t should be proud of her as it is illegal to reuse high flow toilets, even though there is now a black market in high flow toilets because they work with ONE flush.
I got some tree stumps on my property she can levitate any day!
That’s why God invented Duct Tape.
Or someone hit her.
I used to vacation in North Georgia all of the time.
Think I need to start up again.
Screw the ATF and their illegal "laws".
A real crime has three elements. A Perpetrator. A Victim. And actual damage done. There is no victim here and no damage done to anyone else or their property.
This is government over-reach at it's worst. This far exceeds their Constitutional mandate and has destroyed too many peoples lives by enforcing arbitrary and capricious edicts.
How bout blowing up toilets with cherry bombs, in high school? At least she was blowing up her own toilet, on her own property.
Really? Can’t the ATF find any real terrorists? One thing the ATF is good at, getting people murdered, as in Waco Tx.
I know, it was the FBI who murdered them, but it was the ATF who initiated action. Oh yea, first thing the ATF murdered was their dog, and her puppies.
nominate for post of the year!
There was a time in Western PA when you could walk into the company store in any little coal town in PA and pick up dynamite. Of course it was stocked primarily for the miners to use at work, but that did not preclude people from buying it to clear stumps, etc.
If you put your mouse over it, it goes away.
Savage's Facebook profile, which is also still on the web, lists "explosives" as an interest, her political orientation as "anarchist" and her status as "Push to test. Release to detonate."You idiots and your conceited, self-adoring Facebook and Twitter postings will ultimately ruin your own lives.
The Feds are targeting Habersham county. This is the same area where they arrested the geriatric jihad a few months ago. Those poor guys are still in jail. They aren’t guilty of anything except sitting around the Waffle House talking smack about the govt.
We know people up there and a lot of them are pretty unhappy with the govt and there is a lot of tension in that area. This girl is guilty of being a dumb 23 year old who lives in a boring town with nothing else to do except blow up toilets. Cornelia is not a swinging metropolis.
The girl is several things ,and politically aware isn’t one of them.
Posting pictures of yourself with weapons is guarenteed to get the unwanted attention of government ...unless you’re one of Holder’s people or obama’s sons!
Matt Bracken’s Blackwater Rod and Gun Club. Looks like the FedGov is using fiction as a users manual.
Come and get me. My criminal history is so clean I squeak.
